Whyalla Maritime Museum
The central attraction at the Whyalla Maritime Museum is HMAS Whyalla, a 650-tonne corvette and the largest permanently land-locked ship in South Australia. Guided tours of the ship are included in the entry fee and run on the hour from 11am to 3pm from April to October, and from 10am to 2pm from November to March. The lives of the four wartime corvettes built by BHP are documented, as are histories of the shipbuilding industry and the maritime heritage of Spencer Gulf.
